they fought in kansas city just like they did in pittsburg, just like they did in washington and just like they did in st. louis until that last ball of the season that they love. tim flanery, the nitty gritty dirt band. and the grittiest of them all is a 25-year-old lefty who in the last few weeks established himself as the greatest pitcher in the history of baseball! [ cheers and applause ] 4.0 in three world championships,.25 e.r.a. and a game 7 wednesday
night, madison bumgarner emerged from the right field bullpen like a warrior in the battlefield and not sustaining 5 inning, a complete shut out five games earlier. remarkable. [ cheers and applause ] our mvp. something else, i want to share something else that's remarkable. it's something without which we would not be here today and that's the giants ownership group. they saved the team in 1992. they agreed to take the risk of building a privately financed ballpark in 2000 and they now supported us through three world series
championships. i wanted today especially recognize a family that sets the stage for these celebrations with their constant love and devotion and that's the burns family who through their heroic leadership not just saved the team but carried the team forward to this day with the original guidance of the late stuart burns who we think about often and now their family members gracefully carry on. please acknowledge trina and steven humphrey. [ cheers and applause ] we met our alumni earlier and quite frankly baseball has always been about family to so many of us. the stories and love for the game are passed from generation to generation. i think about the children here today who sometimes some day will
be telling their children about the 2014 giants and madison bumgarner just like our parents told us about willie mays and willie mckudy. my father passed away and i miss him tonight but i carry his passion in my just like my wife and children carry it in them. so baseball is the most beautiful of sports because it's continuous in that way. each new generation of fans are stewards of this great game. no generation has been more committed, more passionate than the fans of the san francisco giants towed doctor --
today, right here and right now. thank you very much. thank you for celebrating and let's get back here next october. thank you. [ cheers and applause ] o >> thank you and congratulations again. now, fans to say a few words right now, i want to bring to the podium a beautiful mind, a beautiful baseball mind. he's been longstanding in baseball since 1996, during his 16 years as general manager he has seen 7 and 5 national league west division and four national league and give it to
the general manager, the man who put this team together, mr. brian sabian! [ cheers and applause ] >> before we hear the sign pablo chant, i think i'm a little light, larry, not enough, right pablo? brought that on myself. you know, in the last three run each championship and each experience has been so different. the one common theme which everybody that knows me knows i hate it so much is dealing with the press and i don't mean that in a bad way but it floors me and fascinates necessity on the -- me on the other hand and
people ask why and if you are around the organization you will know why. larry is unsurpassed in any organization of all sports, the commemorative organization group which is longstanding, the front office which is so consistent in their commitment to excellence, their loyalty, the office is beyond what the contract reads, what the players bring. it doesn't stop in the minor league, it continues in the major league. a roster. our group is as good as any. we have probably more long tenured employees on the baseball side of any organization and that's amazing to me. everybody is kicking around
the word dynasty. so i'm going to throw this out here. it doesn't make any difference what anybody else thinks. we are our own dynasty within our own organization, within our own city, with this team this is how they are going to be remembered. any other definition does not apply. the greatest thing accomplished this year was it wasn't against all odds, it wasn't because we didn't deserve it, it's because these guys have mortality -- more -- talent than they think they do and it showed throughout the playoffs how they stood together and took on every and any opponent whether it was a game in washington for the seventh game in kansas city. i'm proud to be a giant. i hope it doesn't take long to return to a podium like this, but
god bless the fans, you are the driving force. god bless this city that so embraces everything we are about and i can't say enough about my feelings today for our whole organization, the appreciation that we feel. having said that, before i bring up our hall of fame manager on a personal note, i want to god bless jim, don zimmer and zalewski who passed away this year. thank you very much. >> i called my players warriors, you
are warriors for coming out in this rain. this has been awesome. as many of you know in 2010, i nicknamed the misfits. it's a group that came together and got it done. in 2012 our model was never say die and of course this year it was yes, yes, yes. i called them warriors. this is a team that silenced a crowd in pittsburg in their house. [ cheers and applause ] and this is a team that beat st. louis twice in their house. and this is a team i said twice, i'm sorry. this is a team that beat washington twice in their house in st.
louis, and this is a team that had to go to kansas city and win the world championship in their house. [ cheers and applause ] this is the best postseason team in they are is ---er era. in this group here, i want to thank them and i told them a couple days ago before the 7th game, what a great honor for me to manage such a tremendous team and a gutsy team like these guys and they never got to see a die attitude. they don't care if the odds are against them. they come out and they play for you and they play for each other and they keep coming at you.
so, i want to tell them in front of all of you now, their fans, i want to tell them thanks for their warrior spirit and the fact that i got to manage this gutsy group. thank you, guys. and to you fans, out there, believe me, never never question. you did help us get through what was a tough year. as larry mentioned we had a tough time, but we looked out there and there was a sea of orange. you are our force and they feed off that force and i feed off that force. i want to say, thanks, thank you, thank you for your tremendous support all year. [ cheers and applause ]
you know, for me to manage this group in this city and with all you fans is truly a blessing. i mean that, thank you very much. [ cheers and applause ] give it up for bruce bochy! [ cheers and applause ] three won championships under his leadership and guidance. amazing. now, everyone i am pleased to introduce to you the best spanish broadcast team in all of baseball. the voice of the giants on spanish radio for the past 16 seasons ernie and his partner who wore
it wasn't the cold. but just to be standing up here in front of you guys, all of you fans back over there, i just feel privileged and i want to say thank you to the whole giants team. these 25 guys that make this possible. it's made me part of this for the third time. i want to say thanks to everybody. we can have a round of applause, please. [ applause ] [ applause ] [ cheers and applause ] . [ spanish ]

cassillo, romo. i'm very proud to be a part of this bullpen and i hope you are too. i got asked a lot of questions in the playoffs this year. the common question is what do we need to do to win a ring. we didn't need to win anything. we didn't need to go beat kansas city in game 7. we wanted to beat pittsburg. we wanted to beat st. louis and we wanted to beat game 7 in my
last thing i want to tell you, you were wearing these sweat shirts. we saw the phrase, take the crown, and that's what royalty wears. they we're -- wear that. this is a dynasty. if you have been to a major league baseball field, and if you come to a giants game, we know how hard it is to win these games. i'm proud to be here next to the gentlemen behind me who played their hearts out. their families, our fans, we can wear our different shirts. and we say to our fans and families, we say kiss the ring. and i'm very proud of it.
>> all right. now it's my pleasure to introduce the best tv announcers. let's hear it for them. >> all right. how is everybody? we as broadcasters have the best job that you could ever imagine and i will tell you why. we have a fan base that is like no other fan base in this country and if someone were to say, well, can you explain why they are different, it really is hard to explain. but i realized that the best way to explain it is to go back to game 7 on wednesday with one out in the
